COVID-19 IgM/IgG rapid test

Test kits are allowed for use by clinical laboratories or healthcare center for point-of-care testing with the previous permission of the Ministry of Health and with Permiso Sanitario of Ecuador.
In response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, Casa de Bienestar, with the collaboration of Dr. Fernando Juca and Dr. Viviana Gomez, is now offering the IgM/IgG antibody rapid test kit. This test can be beneficial for people who are required to go back to work and need a health certificate or who wants to know if they had/have de virus or someone who has been in contact with an infected person.

This COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit is suitable for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 IgM/IgG antibodies in whole blood. Common signs of infection with SARS-CoV-2 include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and dyspnea. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death. SARS-CoV-2 can be excreted through respiratory secretions or transmitted through oral fluids, sneezing, physical contact, and through air droplets.

Screening for COVID-19 IgM and IgG antibodies is a rapid and effective method for the diagnosis of COVID-19 infection. The IgM and IgG antibody test can also provide information on the stage of the disease.

Both Immunoglobulin M (IgM) and Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies are produced during the first stage of an immune response. As the body’s most significant antibody, IgM is the primary antibody to appear in response to initial exposure to antigens. IgM provides the first line of defense during viral infections, followed by the generation of adaptive, high-affinity Immunoglobulin G (IgG) responses for long-term immunity and immunological memory. IgG is usually detectable about 7 days after the IgM appears.
